Maxine Waters the beautiful

maxinewatersthehill.jpgWho is the first female Congress member mentioned on The Hill's new list of the 50 Most Beautiful hill people? Why, our own Rep. Maxine Waters, who comes in at #5 — and the first of either sex older than 37 on the list. (She's listed as 70, the oldest to be honored.) Excerpt:

One aspect of Waters’s signature look — along with her stylish glasses — is her impressively high footwear.

Her leg strength must come from years as a runner. But because of an injury, Waters has recently switched to swimming as her exercise of choice. Most of her cardio, though, surely comes from her first love in personal activities: antique shopping.

Waters collects antique perfume bottles, scales and radios. She also has an extensive collection of ethnic dolls from all over the world, and she loves shopping for old furniture and art.

“I love old things,” she says with a laugh....

There is one other trick Waters uses to always look her best.

“I bathe in moisturizer,” she says.

Also on the list is CNN congressional correspondent and OC product Brianna Keilar.
